Passengers on Emirates Airline Can Now Fly Without Seeing Each Other
Flying Solo. Literally...
Flying just got a big old dose of solitude over on Emirates Airline, after they launched a new first class that means passengers don’t have to see a single fellow human being - including crew - for the entire flight. Necessary? Not really. Extra af? Hell yes.
Enclosed by floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, the new first class suites feature 32-inch HD screens, noise-cancelling headphones (because if you’re not seeing anyone else, you sure as heck don’t want to hear them, right?) and VIRTUAL WINDOWS for those in the middle seat.
Passengers can also customize the lighting and temperature in their suites, and are even provided with sleep oil and pillow mist, perfect to help them relax as they recline into the ‘zero gravity’ seat position. Rich people, eh?
If they DO happen to need to look upon the face of a plebeian crew member, said crew member can be summoned via a ‘room service’ feature.
The new first-class cabin will apparently premiere on the Boeing 777-300ER flight from Dubai to Brussels or Geneva, and a seat probably costs more than you’ll earn in a lifetime.
Just think about that for a bit. Ugh.
